Swansea City are set to drop Wilfried Bony’s £19million release clause in order to sell him this summer, with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur interested in his services, Mirror reports.

Liverpool and Tottenham have both enquired Swansea in regards to Bony’s availability last month, but the Swans were holding out for the £19million buy-out clause.

However according to reports Swansea will ditch the clause with the 25-year-old keen to leave the Liberty for a Champions League club this summer.

Liverpool were close to signing Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy for £8.5million two weeks earlier, but have turned their attentions to Bony after the deal collapsed.

Tottenham have also expressed their desire to bring over the former Vitesse star, with Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino looking to sign his third Swansea player after the purchases of Michel Vorm and Ben Davies.

Bony had an incredible debut campaign in the Premier League last season, scoring 25 goals in all competitions.

    Your talking rubbish, no one takes any notice of what the Mirror prints. Bony is more tan happy to stay at Swansea and we certainly don’t need the money. If he goes it will be for 20 million plus. Nobody wants to stop him playing at the highest level for the biggest clubs but we are not a club that sells just for a quick profit.

    OK sums it up ‘The Mirror’ …… sounds as though we are desperate to sell him.
    We don’t need to sell him and if he wants to go then unfortunately he is under contract which works both ways. IF there is a release clause set at £19M then he and his agent would have been party to that when signing. Nobody has met the clause so they don’t think he is worth it. Wilf will have to knuckle down and focus on the job in hand. Another 20 goal season and they will all come queuing.
